Hi, loves! I have been embracing my new cut and also my natural hair by find ways to wear it curly that do not make me feel like I look like a little boy (no, seriously...). Ever since I got my hair cut, I was wearing it straight and while I was really, really loving it I missed my curls too.
However, I get a lot of shrinkage and I was on pins and needles when I thought about not wearing it straight. I went online for suggestions and saw where a fellow naturalista raved about Nairobi Foam wrap for her wash-n-go's. Say what?!
It was late and the store was closed already but, I remembered that I still had some Creme Of Nature Argan Oil Style & Shine Foam Mousse 7oz
under the sink. I decided to try it out and prayed that it worked out.
I co-washed my hair with As I Am Coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner, 16 Ounce
and applied the Creme of Nature mousse all over my hair saturating every strand. I raked my fingers through, carefully separating my curls and then brushed the sides and back down. I let my hair air dry over night and just fluffed my hair a little and walked out the door.
My curls were so defined with the right amount of hold and softness. I love this stuff on my hair!
Fast forward to this week: I was in Target with my honey and I came across this Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Frizz-Free Curl Mousse 7.5oz. I regularly use Shea Moisture shampoos and conditioners so I picked it up and decided to compare it to my beloved Creme of Nature Style and Shine Mousse.
I do not have any pictures of the after but, I'll just say that I did not get the results I was looking for. I will say it is probably a good mousse if you have do not have a lot of shrinkage or if you have a looser curl pattern.
I liked how soft and light my curls felt with the Shea Moisture Mousse but, the next day I did not like how undefined my hair was and I had more shrinkage that I would have liked. For now I'll stick with the Creme of Nature. I am absolutely in love with my wash-n-go because of this product!
Next on my list to try? Nairobi Wrapp-It Shine Foaming Lotion, 8 Ounce
What do you use for your wash-n-go's? Have you had luck with any foam mousses/lotions?
